Description Jeff Weiss 2009-05-08 20:24:00 UTC
How to repeat:

Create a new event source on the RHQ server.  'touch' the file to create it.  Wait 2 minutes.  now echo into the file lines like this (change datestamps if necessary):

2009-05-08 15:57:41,170 INFO [my.class1] AutomationMsg First info level message
2009-05-08 15:57:41,420 DEBUG [my.class2] AutomationMsg First debug level message
2009-05-08 15:57:41,671 WARN [my.class3] AutomationMsg First warn level message
2009-05-08 15:57:41,921 ERROR [my.class4] AutomationMsg First error level message
2009-05-08 15:57:42,171 FATAL [my.class5] AutomationMsg First fatal level message
2009-05-08 15:57:42,421 INFO [your.class1] AutomationMsg Second info level message
2009-05-08 15:57:42,672 DEBUG [your.class2] AutomationMsg Second debug level message
2009-05-08 15:57:42,922 WARN [your.class3] AutomationMsg Second warn level message
2009-05-08 15:57:43,172 ERROR [your.class4] AutomationMsg Second error level message
2009-05-08 15:57:43,422 FATAL [your.class5] AutomationMsg Second fatal level message

wait 2 minutes.  Now check the Events tab on the RHQ server to see if the events are there.  They don't show up.  Now, wait 2 minutes, then run 'touch' again on the log file to update the modification date.  Wait 2 minutes.  Refresh the events page.  Still no events.

Now run "tail -10 [logfile] >> [logfile]" which basically adds another 10 lines to the end of the file that match what's already there (since the file is 10 lines).  Wait 2 minutes.  Refresh.  Now there are 8 events.  The 2 that are missing are the DEBUG level events even though DEBUG is checked in the filter.

'touch' the file again.  Wait 2minutes, refresh.  Still no new entries.

Comment 1 Jeff Weiss 2009-05-08 20:40:41 UTC
I now realize the lack of DEBUG messages is expected, I was creating the source with the default level of INFO.  However the other problem remains unexplained.

Temporarily adding the keyword "SubBug" so we can be sure we have accounted for all the bugs.

new = Tracking + FutureFeature + SubBug

making sure we're not missing any bugs in rhq_triage
